The College Center Gallery presented an exhibit of the prints and paintings of Andy Willis and David “Blue” Lamm, members of the Miner’s Art Group of West Virginia. "The group," wrote Sarah Sedgwick '79 in The Miscellany News, "states that their art is not 'art for art's sake but rather art which tries to reflect accurately the concerns and aspirations of people in the coal fields.... We take our art show to the people to test its validity and to inspire native artists to produce art reflecting their past and present.'" A miner and self-taught painter and the founder of Coal Field Defender, an independent United Mine Workers Association newspaper, Lamm spoke about his art, his group and the situation of miners and their communities in the Faculty Parlor on February 21.
